Change the Thoughts, Release the Pain

Below the misbehavior is pain. Below the depression is pain. Below the bad habit is pain. Attached to the pain are many thoughts. I am not good enough. I am not lovable. I am not deserving. I am not worthy. All these are false. Perhaps the behavior is not good enough, but it is the best you can manage in the moment. Change the thoughts, release the pain. Why not just be happy? You can do it.

Your Own Highest Good

You cannot know what someone else's highest good is. You cannot know her journey. Please allow each person her own experience of life. When you find yourself judging or criticizing, just take a breath, and check in with yourself. What do you need right now? What are you holding onto that can be released? What is your self-criticism about? What is in the interest of your own highest good? Bless you.

One Good Thing

Oh, my dears, you are so precious. Do one thing, and then the next thing. Stop worrying so much. Do one good thing and then the next. That's all you need to know.

Whatever has been your habit in the past is open to change. Whatever you think you cannot do might be a possibility if you allow yourself to consider it so. Whatever you have always thought, you can change your mind about. Nothing is set in stone. Nothing scars you for life. Nothing is off the table. Be open. Always allow the "maybe," the "or," the "what if." Who knows what you might be capable of? Just give it a try.

Relax and Enjoy

Please be gentle with yourself. Know that you are learning and growing always. Know that your mistakes are meant to teach you. Know that in the karmic perspective, everything is just as it should be. Know that you can relax and enjoy. Relax and Enjoy.

Simply Love

Our blessings to you this lovely morning. We want you to know that we are not waiting for you to change. We are not waiting for you to understand. We are just loving you and observing your progress. Can you do that for yourself and for your loved ones? Can you simply love? You will be much happier and more contented when you can merely watch, appreciate and love. Stop waiting for anything. Merely live.

There is freedom in surrender. There is freedom in acceptance. There is freedom in non-judgment. There is freedom in expecting nothing. Be. Breathe. Notice. Love.

Open Yourself To Love

Remember you are loved. Remember we are always here for you. Remember your fellow humans are also available to you for love and support. Learn how to ask. Learn how to humble yourself to others who have love to offer. Learn how to be vulnerable to your friends and family. There is only way to receive love and that is to open yourself to it.

Being Who You Are

When you find work that feeds your soul, you are coming closer to yor essential reason for being in this life. Your essential work might not be how you earn a living, but when the two are one, your life can be joyous and fulfilling. When you find work that makes your heart sing, you will pass on the knowledge that being yourself, using your unique talents and learning, is a path to wholeness. Being who you are in the world is priceless.

Peace Is the Answer

Please remember, peace is the answer. Peace. Peace in your heart, in your mind, in your words, and in your actions. Your great teacher Martin, honored on this day, is a shining example. A human being, with all that implies, who stood for peace and justice in spite of the danger to himself. He, indeed as many of you suspected, foretold his death. He knew when he gave that famous speech that he would not see his work come to fruition. He is with you still in spirit and is a wonderful example to all. You don't have to be perfect to do good work. You don't have to be flawless to be a conduit of peace. Simply begin.

You Are an Artist

Every single one of you has an ability to express yourself artistically. Every single one. Stop worrying about the quality of the work. Just experiment and enjoy the process. Pour your soul into a song, a painting, a sculpture, a garment, a garden. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, and the beauty of art is in the process of making it. What happens afterward is, at the soul level, irrelevant. Just try it. Have some fun!

Move On

Meet each other in acceptance and compassion. Whatever is going on for the other person, he is on his path. Do not judge or blame. However, you need not be a victim of the other person's struggle. You can love him, wish him well, accept and have compassion for him, and still decide that his energy is not what you want around you. It's perfectly okay to separate yourself from that person while he struggles through. Send up prayers, think of him as healing, picture him peaceful and content. And move on.

Many Lifetimes

Please know that you have been through the birth and death process many many times. For some of you, thousands and thousands of times. Allowing in this knowledge helps to put everything in perspective. Allowing memories of other lifetimes, other bodies, other places helps you to release any burdens carried over, any unexplained physical complaints. Through these so-called past life memories, your present focus can become clearer and more joyful. I say "so-called" because in our perspective, the world of spirit, there is no past, present or future. It is only in the physical realm where these concepts are relevant. That is why you can change your experience in any of your other incarnations at any time. This is how you re-write history. Kathie knows of this from a personal experience. Ask her about it.

Enjoy Every Day

Dance, dance, dance. Laugh and sing the day awy. Find something that brings a smile to your face. Believe in the beauty and joy which is all around you. Play. Why not enjoy every day? Whyever not?

Be an Ever-Flowing River of Love

Gather unto yourself all that your heart desires. Gather unto yourself all that the universe has to offer. Gather unto yourself all that your are capable of. And then give back generously and with your whole heart into the world. Be a conduit, a channel, an ever-flowing river of love, protection, peace, laughter and joy. Receive with appreciation, give with humility. There lies bliss.

Act From Love

The opposite of love is not hate, but fear. And if you ask yourself in any situation, “which is in charge – love or fear?,” you will find yourself behaving in ways that will help you be happier and make better relationships in all areas of life. When love is in charge, you are accepting, gentle, generous, relaxed, happy, open, fun-loving, creative, full of ideas and good humor. When fear is in charge, you are anxious, short-tempered, suspicious, timid, angry, selfish, and stuck. When fear is in charge, you take everything personally and believe the world is laughing at you or judging you. When love is in charge you understand that each person is on her own path and that her behavior has very little to do with you. When love is in charge, your face and body glow and exude health and healing. When fear is in charge, your body is tense and prone to disease and physical discomfort. When fear is in charge, you are demanding and judgmental. When love is in charge, you are grateful and content.
In any situation, you can make a decision to act from love instead of from fear. When you act from love, you create trust, hope, justice, kindness, compassion, dignity, respect, connection, opportunity, joy, peace, creativity, quiet, encouragement, intimacy, confidence, health, freedom, acceptance, beauty. When you act from fear, you create oppression, separation, disease, self-loathing, clutter, discouragement, confusion, loss, self-harm, aggression, loneliness, hate, violence, stagnation, suspicion, distrust, hopelessness. Fear can feel overwhelming and true, but it’s only information. When it is a gut reaction to actual danger, listen to it and make yourself safe. Otherwise, it’s just anxiety about some imagined future occurrence. It only has the power you give it. Choose love.

You Are Surrounded By Loving Friends

Whenever you are sad you are surrounded by loving friends. We always hear your cries. We always dry your tears. It's good to find people on earth who will do the same, but even when you can't or when you do not allow willing friends to see your pain, even then, we are with you. Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, quiet your mind, and you will feel our presence. You will feel our love. Let us wrap you in our loving embrace, and you will begin to feel better. You are beautiful. You are safe. You are worthy.

To Be Loved

To be loved, begin by loving. To be respected, begin by treating others respectfully. To be understood and accepted, begin by understanding and accepting yourself just as you are.

Your Essential Freedom

Your freedom lies within your heart -- your freedom to choose light, love, happiness, joy, generosity. That is your true freedom. When you are in touch with that essential freedom, all your choices in the world are part of your movement toward enlightenment. You say yes when it's for your highest good and the highest good of others. When you are in touch with your inner freedom and take responsibility for your choices in the world, then you are content, and you accept any situation you have co-created.

Ask the Question

Whenever you spend any time wondering what someone else is thinking, you are stealing from your own life. Whenever you play out conversations in your head, you are wasting precious minutes. Speak up, ask the question, find out what's going on for the other person. Everything else is just speculation.

Monday, January 3, 2011

Kindly Speak

Speak what's in your heart, and expect no particular outcome. Speak with the sole goal of communicating your thoughts and feelings. What the other person takes from it is out of your hands. Kindly speak what's in your heart and let it be.

Choose Your Own New Year

You are free to choose your own new year. You needn't start in the dead of winter. Perhaps spring seems more like a beginning to you, or summer. For some of you autumn is what feels like a new beginning. Choose your own time for reflection and for looking forward, for taking stock and forming resolutions. You might even make a new beginning at each new moon. Whatever society says, you are free to choose. Follow your own rhythm, your own heart.
